Rev. Dr. Jackson Day
Rev. Day is happy simply to go by “Jack.” He received his bachelor’s in history from Western Maryland College and his theology degrees from Wesley Seminary in Washington. Along the way he received a master’s in public health from Chapel Hill. He began his career as an army chaplain in Vietnam, burned out on ministry and went into health care management for 30 years, where he was Vice President for Business Development at JSA Healthcare in Columbia. He returned to the Baltimore-Washington Conference in 2001 while carrying the health-care portfolio at the United Methodist General Board of Church and Society and serves on the United Methodist Mental Health Task Force. He is the lead author of “Risking Connection in Faith Communities: A Training Curriculum for Faith Leaders Supporting Trauma Survivors,” published by Sidran in Towson in 2006. This will be his third pastoral appointment since he began “failing retirement” in 2008. He was most recently pastor of Providence UMC in Towson and is currently treasurer and interim President for the Greater Baltimore Covenant Union, which has an affiliate, “Our Keepers Center,” at St. John’s. He is married to Fran Irvin and has seven grandchildren.
